It is estimated that the amount this year will almost reach 82,000,000, ex slu.« i vs of the appropriation of 8500,- 000 for the Lewis and Clark Fair. T he legislature has passed the bill appropriating 1165,000 to build a port age railroad at the dalles of the Co lumbia river, between Celilo and The Dalles. The Oregon Railway and Navigation Company bad a powerful lobby about Salem opposing the bill. T he people of southern Oregon seem to think that we have had much more than our share of moisture du ring the past five months; yet al Cres cent City, Cal., 651 inches fell during the same time, or nearly twice as moeh rain as was recorded that season the year before. P robably no state in the Union can show a better financial condition than Oregon. The state bas no out standing bonded indebtedness, and it- current debits are more tban offset by accruing credits. In other words, Or egon is cut of debt, and with every thing collected and paid out that Is due,there would n main a considerable balance in tbe treasury. A W ashingtom report says one sen ator at least was greatly Incensed at Rockefeller sending him a dispatch to the effect that tbe anti-trust bill must be killed. That is tbe first case on reaord of a senator getting angry through notice from tbe big fellows. If not millionaires themselves tbe senators are often under pay of some big corporation.

Senate, is not doing its duty by the people was given when it defeated Representa tion Hale’s bill for removal of tbe lim itation of 85600 in suits for damages growing out of tbedealh of a person ar ising from wrongful acts or negligence of another was defeated in the Senate Monday.

For ante by City Drag Store. Will Continue to Protect the Truata nnd Roh the People. The fight in the ranks of the Repub lican party on the trust aud tariff is sues bas resulted in the triumph of tbe Hanna faction. “Let well enough alone,” or do as little as possible, is to be the programme in congress and not a vigorous reform of abuses which was promised before election. It had been fondly hoped that Presi dent Roosevelt would add the weight of his great office to ths side of the people and urge reform. But to the great regret of all who believe in “equal rights to all and special priv ileges to none” tbe lukewarm recom mendations in the president's message ar« a victory for the do nothings. Strange to say, there is no specific rec ommendation in the whole message for a law to prevent tbe extortions of the trusts or the subsidies granted them by the protective tariff. It Is not the production of the strenuous Roosevelt, but the glittering generalities of the anxious politician. Intent on pleasing all 'factions and especially the stron gest If Mr. Morgan or Mr. Rockefeller had been president and had written the message or decided upon its contents, tt could not have been more conserva tive and the intention made more evi dent that no legislation of consequence will be attempted by congress. The financial kings of Wall street through their senatorial and congressional al lies. appear to have by tbe force of numbers deluded the president into the belief that there is great danger of dis turbing tbe business of the country if any reform is even attempted. The presidential chariot has been hitched to the Juggernaut of Wall street which ruthlessly ignores tbe cries of distress of those under their feet The presi dential recommendation for a tariff commission bas for weeks been the demand of the principal Wall street organ, tt being well known that the procrastinating workings of such a body would hinder rather than accel erate reform. In fact President Roose velt emphasizes this when he says, “The unhurried and unbiased report of this commission would show what changes should be made in the various schedules.” “Unhurry” is Just what Wall street and the trusts desire. Furthermore, tbe president has been led to believe that reforming the tariff by removing the protection that allows the trusts to ■ell their products cheaper to foreign ers than to our people “would be whol ly ineffective.” Thus the beef trust, the coal trust tbe steel trust and the hundred other trusts, as far as tbe tar iff is concerned, are to have free rein to continue their exactions. But Pres ident Roosevelt recommends that tbe duty on anthracite coal be repealed, though he acknowledges that such an amendment wopld only be of service in such a crisis as was produced by the coal strike. He does not recommend that bituminous coal should also be free, though that would be of greater benefit In regulating tbe price of fue! ■t all times. Regarding the power of congress to regulate the trusts tbe president is evi dently in an uncertain mind and makes no specific recommendations or sugges tions. He, however, acknowledges that tt may be necessary to amend the con- stitution to give more power to con- ‘ PROFITS AND CHARITY. Baron« Rob tbe People and Pay a Small Percentage aa Haah Money. The Standard OU company notified its customers Dec. 10 that it had ad vanced the price of oil another cent per gallon. This is an Increase of 3V4 cents since the beginning of the coal strike. On Dec. 11 Commander Booth Tuck er of the Salvation Army got a prom ise by telephone from J. Pierpont Mor gan that he would do all in his power to aid the Salvation Army to supply the poor with coal. The army is bold ing meetings on corners in the tene ment section of New York for the pur pose of giving instructions as to how to use porous bricks which may be saturated with kerosene or petroleum and used for heating purposes Instead of coal. Morgan controls the coal and Rocke feller tbe oil trust Each profits by the other’s mouopoly uud high prices. The prices of both coal and oil will average 40 to 00 per cent higher this year than last year. There is almost no limit to tbe price which these coal and oil barons could obtain in winter for these earth commodities. Their monopoly is now complete enough, but they fear the wrath of the people too much to double prices at once. They welcomed the coal strike because it accustomed the people to higher prices. The 3t4 cents per gallon advance in the price of oil meaus 835,000,000 of extra profits to the trust which paid dividends last year of 848,000,000. The 82.50 or 83 per ton advance in the price of coal means 8125,000,000 or 8150,000,000 a year to the coal trust. It pays to be a divine bolder of tbe coal and oil properties of this country, even if a part of tbe profits of the busi ness is given as charity to the poor to help them to keep warm. If a little given in this way will keep tbe people quiet while the trusts put on the screws and add another cent per gal lon or another 50 cents per ton it is a good investment. The “Christian men to whom Qod In bis infiulte wisdom has given control of the property in terests of this country” are both char itable and wise. We are at their mercy, and they are merciful unto us. There is no law to compel them to give a dollar of their profits to charity. They just give out of the goodness of their hearts. We may be thankful that such wise and good agents are put in charge of the coal and oil mlues of this boun tiful earth. Following the Prealdent’« Lea«. BRIEF MENTION.

President Schurman of Cornell uni versity in a speech delivered before tbe Nineteenth Century club in New York on Dec. 11 gave a pitiful picture of conditions in the Philippines, which is much at variance with the optimistic picture drawn by President Roosevelt in bls message to congress.

The land office at Oregon City caused tbe cancellation of timber en tries in Tillamook county amounting to 30,000 acres, on the ground of fraud and collusion between entrymen and parties who had arranged to buy the land on title being secured. C. E. Hays was the principal contestant and Robert Sturgeon principal c mtestee. On Sturgeon’s case tl.e fate of 100 oth ers depended. Oretoa. - - Jacksonville. •W Office in Red Men’s Building. ROBT.
